    Exclamation 12.10 Ubuntu Install Black Screen problem!

    I've been trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 on my PC but I've been having issues. I get to the GRUB Screen there 3 options, install ubuntu, try ubuntu without installing and check disc for defects. I've tried all 3 options but each one leads to a black blank screen. This is on a system that came with Windows 8 pre-installed and I want to dual-boot with Ubuntu, so its has UEFI firmware. I changed changed the
    Code:
     splash
    parameter to
    Code:
    nomodeset
    but it didn't make a difference. So basically I am stuck on this screen and if I try to continue I get the black blank screen.

    Can you please post your hardware specs? In order to install Ubuntu in UEFI mode, follow these instructions:

    At the point you set nomodeset <F6>, instead of selecting nomodeset, pres <Esc> so the boot line appears as editable, then after the "--" type in the parameter

    Re: 12.10 Ubuntu Install Black Screen problem!

    What monitor do you have connected to what port?

    For instance:
    Code:
    nomodeset video=VGA:1024x768@60m
    Would turn off kms and set the VGA port to a resolution of 1024x768 at 60hz vertical refresh with a margin...

    Another question... what is this on (make/model)?

    I don't understand how to do that.

    It's a HP - Pavilion 23 Model:23-b034

    OK- I now see it's an APU chipset in an All-In-One...

    Try
    Code:
    nomodeset acpi=off
    If that does work for the LiveCD, on reboot you will still have to use that boot option until the fglrx driver is installed...
